Sir Malcolm Campbell Set's 300MPH Speed Record on Daytona Beach 1935


...Rolex Speed King...

Sir Malcolm Campbell
Set's 300MPH Speed Record on Bonneville Salt Flats 1935

I just added this great Sir Malcolm Campbell Rolex ad from 1935 to my story named "The Complete History Of The Rolex Daytona Cosmograph." 

More than a decade before Chuck Yeager set the all-time speed record for level flight, when he broke through the sound barrier in 1947, Sir Malcolm was breaking one land-speed record after another, and one thing both men had in common, was they both depended on their trusted Rolex Oyster watches to keep their time. Both Chuck Yeager and Sir Malcolm Campbell depended on their Rolex watches as pure tool watches. Does Campbell's Bluebird look like the modern Bat-mobile or what?
